Today we rode Mt. Falcon, in the red rocks near Denver. This starts at 6000 ft and climbs 1500 ft in 2.5 miles. This was very challenging aerobically due to the constant climb at higher altitude than I'm used to, and also the power you have to apply to go over various rocks and water bars. It was also challenging technically for a newbie like me. It was fun going down. We were careful and not too fast. Here are pictures of me (in the orange shirt) and Gail (in the white and red shirt).
